Six Questions I Want 'Lost' to Answer Before It Ends

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 14th 2010 4:54PM
Lost
As last night's episode of 'Lost' showed, this season really is giving us a lot of answers. And even if the show isn't giving us all the answers we want/need, at least we can now feel a forward momentum driving us towards the end. There are only five episodes of the show left, can you believe it?

The show can't possibly answer all of the questions, small and big, that have come up since the show started in 2004. I think they'll answer enough of them for most fans, but you and I both know that 37 seconds after the season finale ends, some people are going to go online and complain. That was a lame ending! They didn't even answer the question I wanted them to answer! I wasted six years for this?!

I won't be one of those people. They've answered the question of the numbers enough for me, and several other mysteries don't bother me. Unless the show ends in a WTF 'Sopranos' fade-out, I'll just go with what the writers give us. Of course, that doesn't mean I don't want some questions answered:

Six Keys to Enjoying the Final Season of 'Lost'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 1st 2010 4:09PM
lost_abc_poster_season_6There's something reassuring about knowing that the end is near. Not the end of life, but the end of a long trip or the last pages of a book. Television viewers are no different.

The very idea that the upcoming return of 'Lost' -- it premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. (ET) -- will be the beginning of the end, the build up to the grande finale is both a joyful and bittersweet experience.

To make sure it's more of the former and less of the latter, here's a few keys that will ensure you will savor the return of 'Lost' so that it will be good to the last drop.

Lost + Petula Clark = awesome parody song

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 27th 2010 2:30PM
This is an extremely clever song for the last season of Lost, courtesy The Fine Brothers. It wonders if the writers of the show are actually going to answer all of the questions posed by the first five seasons. And it's all done to the tune of "Downtown" (original after the jump!)

Jacob is coming to Supernatural

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 27th 2009 10:46AM
Lost - JacobIn the season finale of Lost, we saw the mysterious Jacob get stabbed by Ben. Of course, we have no idea if that means Jacob will be killed or just injured (maybe he can't even die like a normal person can), but if he is indeed not on the show anymore, actor Mark Pellegrino has secured another gig.

Michael Ausiello over at EW.com says that Pellegrino will play the devil on The CW's Supernatural.

Lost: Nine ways to die on The Island

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 24th 2008 11:03AM
Lost
On the last episode of Lost, we learned that the Island won't let people die. Well, some people. Michael, for instance. And we can assume the Oceanic Six--Kate, Jack, Hurley, Sun, Sayid, Aaron--experienced the same inability to die as Michael.

But a lot of people have died. Some of them are missed and some of them... not so much. And there will be a lot more deaths over the final two seasons of the series, which returns with a new episode tonight. It seemed like a good time to look back on some of the island's most notorious deaths. And the strange manners in which characters died:

Lost: S.O.S.

by C.K. Sample, III, posted Apr 12th 2006 11:36PM
(S02E19) Tonight's episode, S.O.S. (or as I like to call it: Couple's Night), centered around two characters' back stories which we've all been longing to see (or at least Ryan has as he's mentioned it in nearly every single one of our Lost podcasts): Rose and Bernard. Rose and Bernard aren't just an interracial married couple marooned on an island. They would seem to be symbolic of lots of the dichotomies going on in Lost land. One of them was a front-ender and the other a tail-ender, so to a certain degree they are the link that brings the two non-Other "tribes" of the island together. In the opening scene, we also discover that they represent another all-too-common dichotomy of the island: those who want to escape from the island and those who are satisfied to stay and begin building a life on the island. Bernard very vocally notices to Rose that while his end of the plane were fighting to survive, her end was busy building kitchens on the beach, and he claims that they've "given up on being rescued."

More, with spoilers, after the break...

Live Lost Chat Location

lost; the others; the islandThat's right ladies and gentlemen, there is a new episode of Lost on tonight and we'll find out all of the secrets from when Claire was captured last season by Ethan next to nothing, but it'll probably still be insanely entertaining. A lot of folks have been complaining about Lost's slow pace recently, but keep in mind, we're still barely halfway through the season, I think the crew knows what they're doing. Make sure you check back here at TV Squad at 8:00pm EST tonight, and that's when we will unveil the hidden location for the chat. Claire is looking for it out in the jungle at the moment. In the meantime, make sure that you have AIM or a compatible instant messenging system (GAIM, Trillian, etc) installed. I'll be in the room under the id TVSRyan and a couple other of the TV Squadders will probably stop by, so look for us. Will we actually find out anything tonight?  I don't know, but come join us tonight and we'll find out together.

UPDATE:
Come one, come all; here is the secret location for our Lost Chat! See you inside.
